Tim McNalley and I have been gigging together as a duo since he joined the G Burns Jug Band in early 2016. We finally settled on a name: The Darling Brothers. The name is a nod to a long-defunct bourbon manufacturer that operated in my northern Kentucky hometown in the late 19th century. Here’s our debut collection of songs! Our repertoire is based in the same historical era as the G Burns Jug Band’s, but we’re carving out a different sound based around clawhammer or pre-bluegrass banjo styles. Keep an eye out for us gigging around San Diego!
